Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer—why are American troops who are tasked with keeping security at the Capitol being forced to sleep in a parking lot?
They deserve to be treated with respect, and we deserve answers.
Frankly, they shouldn't have to be there in the first place. But, you know -- there was that months-long campaign of incendiary lies, and ... whoopsie-daisy.
If you actively seek out bad journalism, you'll be able to get mad & complain about it.

I've been pondering why Dr. Fauci became such a hate-figure on the right. I think it's because they knew, by and large, he was right -- and that Team Trump was out of its depth and blowing it. And that Trump was lying. Therefore, they turned their ire on that showboat Fauci.
In a 1988 general-election debate, Fauci was hailed by Vice President Bush as a living hero. Twenty years later, Fauci received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from George W. Bush. Fauci was all right by Republicans for a long time -- and then came Trump. Figures.

Amusing, tragic, infuriating -- so many things.
After she has felled the tyrant Scarpia, Tosca declares, "Before him, all of Rome trembled." Maybe one day, when Trump's influence is significantly reduced, Liz Cheney and others will be able to say, "Before him, the GOP and the whole American Right trembled -- but no more."
Let me rephrase my previous comment. I treasure both Coke and Pepsi, as important in this country as the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. I also treasure both the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers. My opponents, however, hate all of those things. Vote Nordlinger!
